Day 27~ October 27th~ Yunnan

loaded~ Hani woman~ Yunnan

Travelling the mountains of the Honghe region of Yunnan, we spent many hours both in the car and on foot between the different locations that we planned to visit. The roads were in a very poor state due to recent landslides caused by an earthquake and that fact left us uncertain as to which routes to take to reach our destination. So when I asked on a couple of occasions how far a village was, ย the answer came in ‘walking distance’ rather than driving. Then I realized the amazing distances these people walked with loads on their backs and on steep uphills and downhills. Even the fields they planted were on almost 90 degree slopes that looked impossible to walk let alone harvest.
